It is interesting to note the importance placed on eagle feathers in various cultures. Highland clan chiefs still wear three eagle feathers in their bonnets as a symbol of their rank, while in Native American culture, eagles and their feathers still hold great significance. They were traditionally included in head-dresses, used in various ceremonies, and were also awarded to warriors for acts of bravery. Being such great soarers, it is not surprising they represented a higher perspective on life, and were believed to have a particularly close connection to the Creator.
An old Manx name for the eagle is Drein - the Druid's bird, giving them status as king of the birds. However, a tale from the Western Highlands tells a different story. All the birds of the air held a contest for sovereignty, deciding to settle it by seeing who could fly the highest. Just when the eagle, almost predictably, declared his triumph, the tiny wren popped out from its hiding place among the eagle's feathers and flew that bit higher and won the contest. The Druids held only the wren in greater esteem than the eagle for its shrewdness and cunning!
